Got a new enclosure thinking it is a good one (per someone on another board recommendation)…so I went ahead and bought a KingWin KH-350U-S (USB 2.0 only).
The thing is I only get 19 MB/sec burst speed…which is not enough for 16x.
I RMA’ed the drive and they gave me a “upgraded version”, the KH-350UF-S (USB 2.0 and Firewire). Firewire is useless because my IBM T42 laptop doesn’t have firewire…but the USB 2.0 on the “upgraded” version is even worse. I now get 18MB/sec…arghhh.
What to do now??
